REVIEWER 
RAPPED! 

Dear Su. 

Your reviewer of Escape 
from Orion for the BBC micro 
{C&VC, July) has got his (acts 
wrong. The review is based 
on two specific criticisms of 
the piogram: 

"When you have completed 
screen 1 you do not 
auiomatK^kUy go on to screen 
two. but must go back to the 
menu." Aj^ imponant feamie 
of the program ts the ability 
to chooae jus4 which screeris 
VtNi play. 

If you chooM only screen 
1, Then ii cycles round screen 
one uniH you change your 
choice, but if you choosa a 
combination of screens (and 
dMiUlt is all four) it cjycles 
through screens L 2< 3 ajid 4, 
and then back to 1 
tttttomaiticaQy, witho^tt any 
intefVMttiofL 

Tfou can't go up the 
ladders but can only descend 
to the bottom of (he screen." 
Rubbishr The reviewer must 
have been pressing the 



wrong key 

The other criticism, of the 
program was itiat the fast 
missiles BJ^ easy to dodge. 
As you compete the screens, 
they get harder* and imother 
feanire of the program is the 
initio difficuky level 
selection. I suspect your 
reviewer only tried level 1. If 
he d staned at level 5 and 
worked up io level 9 he 
might have found i\ harderf 

Not everybody who buys 
game^ ts an expert, and 
Escape from Orion tnes to 
cater for alt skills. 

I hope you'll be able to 
have another look ai Escape 
from Onon, and ch^mge yoiu 
opinion of it. 
Paul Sfmv^, 
Hopesoft,

Berks.

TRIALS OF 



VIRGIN 



De«f Sir, 

I was most upset to re^ your 
review of Siieepwaik. 
However. I don't want to ciip 
about our bad reviews -- 
afEer alln everyone u entitled 
to their own opinion and 1 
don't feel defensive about the 
quality of OUT software. 

What 1 do reaexil, however, 
L^ clever clever joumalisis 
makmg snide cxminient^ that 
have Lnle to do with the 
subject that they aie 
supposed lo be addressing. 

I would like to reassure 
you thai Virgm Camee is a 
software house, albeit a new 
one, though I don't know 
when that was decreed to be 
a bad thing We Intend to still 
be around in a couple of 
years time when an awful lot 
of others, both big and small, 
could weU have either taken 
the money, or los^is, and 
run. 

I am sorry that your (tm- 
named) reviewed didnt er^oy 
Sheep walk (cotmnrnded 
eteewhere in the same issue 
of Computer a^d Video 



Games for ats ongu\alitv!) faul 
It does; not really ttiatter what 
he, or 1, ihmk of it as it is the 
customers who will decide 
what IS, or isn't, good — 
voting with their hard earned 
cash - and Sheepwalk is 
gettmg a lot of votes. So up 
yours!

DEFENDING 
THE ATARI 

Dear Sli. 

With reference to £toto»der 
Oe/ended, h^ailbag, Juty 
imie. 1 am in total ag wtmw t 
with Paul Ippaso. The Atari 
400 3O0 computers have far 
superior graphio^ to the BBC 
— not only on Defender. You 
should take a look ai 
Necromancer by Synapse or 
Ai^io Chase from Fursi Star. 

As for playmg PlanetoLds 
with the keyboard, this only 
brmgs me closer to my Atari 

Secondly, re Anack on 
Atari same issue* I Ihmk 
Deke Roberts wwM be the 
rir«! !o c^mplam if he had 
designed som lop quality 
and top settmg cartr^^res 
and some o<her company 
^ame atong and anempted to 
steal them. 

U he can't see why Atari 
"ding writs" around like this 
he should ^ust kxik ^^t what 
the video blm pirates are 
doing to the fibn induitty. IT 
he stiU can'! see, then all 1 
can suggest is thai he 
continues to buy inferior 
IntetUvision cartridge*. 

Finally, re Overpriced 
Cartndges, sanie issue. Jiutt to 
prove 1 am not totally Atari 
biased, I agree with Eddie 
Mitchell 

Atari softwwe ts expensive, 
but 1 feel thei in time it will 
become cheaper as Ihe 
current boom m homie 
computers sut^ides to a 
steady level

shofW the prograin is loading 
Instead of isopping with o o

(the fcreen} tunis a grey

1 have tried loading at 

volume levels and 
that aU the leads afo 
and m the right

Could you try to explain why 
my I apes should load on one

I have had great fun wth your

alone trymg io beat the top 
scxjires) and my favourite gajine 
is Alaf i's Srar iZaiders. 

Recently a thought occurred 
to Kie; that with the state of 
technology, it should now be 
possible 10 mm both these 
great games together. This [ 
wUl leave to youl 

By knkmg players to a oen- 



traJ eompulet^ via telephone, 
(using modems) this would 
bypass the need for wtilten 
orders. 

1 ttunk it would be nice lo 
ptay agajjiM other players m 
this way, as you would not 
have to wait weeks to find out 
if you have won. also it would 
be m^ ii each player desig- 
nated their own craft, (a 16 ^ 
16 pixel should do) this would 
enable players to ideniily each 
other — so you can tell who 
you )ust wiped out.

The article by Ron Potkm in 
your June edition has made 
me lee I ih^t maybe I am 
missuig out on sonwlhiing. He 
talks about Drmgon owners 
looking longingly ^t the 
wealth of software available 
for the TRS 80 Coloui 
Computer. 

As I have owned a CoCo 
for some Six monihi now. I 
find this very hard to beUeve. 
m lad [ woukl say thai m

my pomi, the same edition in 
which the article is to be

only two (or the CoCo!

As I want to buy a home 
compiler In the new fimire, 
Im always looking for 
descnptions of hard and 
software m computer 
magazines. Youis is the besti 

Bui I don't know which 
home compute! weIU be ihe 
best one for me to buy Et 
shouldn't only be for playing 
garner 1 dso want to u^e it to 
help me in my job. 

My two questions are^ (and 



nobody has been able to 
answer them yet) What is the 
most suitable home computer 
for me - Ataxi 400. Sinclair 
ZXBl.T19S4aoT Vic-20? 

In Germany, there isn't as 
much software available as 
there is in England! b it 
possible for me to run 
software I bought m England 
on my SmcLau S181 or Vic -20 
J may buy m Gertnany^ Can 1 
iipe the programs ycni offer m 
youiT mag«me for a German 
soW home computer {le ZXfll 
OT Vic-20)? I don't know 
where I can gm a 
professional answer. 

As Im Mill a student, t 
doni have enough mon^ to 
buy the Alui BOO {my 
favourite machine) and as t 
want to i|et "a lot of K for my 
small moneybag. I have lo 
ask a loi of questkms. 
Semd Scheie, 
HMinbarg, 
W Germany 

Editor's reply: It*s difficult 
to say which machine i« 
best supported in Germanf , 
Bemd. It really is a choice 
between the Vic 20 and the 
Tl99^'4a. The latter has the 
best graphics — but not so 
much software. Software 
bought in the UK can be 
u^^d in Ccrmany. 

SELLING 
SORWARE 

Deal Sir, 

A aouple of Mends As\d 
myself ore mteresied m 
staninq a small wftwmrt Binru 
We hope to proditoe garties

Editor^s reply: The ma^ 
problem is keeping 
account^. If yoQ advertise 
the tax maji wiU want to 
keep tabf^ on you! It is not 
leaily necessary to form a 
company al the early stages 
— but a form of agreemept

There's one 

game you should play 

with a home computer 

before you buy it. 



If you'ie looking for your 
first home computer, may wq 
make a suggestion. 

Tear out this page. 

And ask these questions of 
every computer you look at. 

1) Is the basic price reason 
able, say under £180? 

2) Does it work with 
a monitor as weW as with 
an ordinary UHF TV? 

3) Does it include a basic 
training manual that doesn't 
require a science degree to 
understand? 

4) Does it have colour? 

5) And sound? 

6) Does it take cassettes? 

7) And cartridges? 

8) And can you operate 
them v\ith joysticks working 
directly off the basic unit? 

9) Does it have a prafes 
sional quality keyboard that's 
guaranteed for tw^ent\' million de 
pressions (and no headaches)? 

10) Does it have colour 
graphics that are capable of 
producing detailed pictures? 

11) Is the case robust 
enough to stand up to the kids? 

12) Does it use a standard 
language that's not a million 
miles au'ay from English? 



13) Is there an expanding 
range of high quality software 
available fa^m the makers? 

14) Does the software in- 
clude educational programs for 
adults as well as the very young? 

15) And is there software 

20 Questions. 

sophisticated enough to satisfy 
the experts? 

1 6) Does it use the most up 
to date technology, for instance 
ihe 6809E microprocessor? 

1 7) Will it drive a standard 
printer directly from the basic 
unit? 

18Hs it made in the UK? 
19J And for the basic price 



TVtKH 
in prict 





will I get an easily accessible, 
yet large memor\' of at least 32K? 
20) Or will I have to add tots 
of extras (and lots of money) 
tor that much? 

After you've finished pester- 
ing ever>' computer salesman 
in sight, compare your 
answers to these, cour- 
tesy of the Dragon 32 
( this is.afterall.an ad for 
the Dragon), 

Questionsl-19. Yes.yes.yes» 
yes. yes. yes, yes, yes. yes, yes. 
yes. yes. yes. yes, yes. yes, yes, 
yes and yes. Question 20. No. 

If you're thinking that that's 
a lot of computer for the money, 
you'd be right. 

i lowever. wlicn^^u come to 
read the handbook you'll soon 
realise that somethings missing 
The jargon usually asso- 
ciated with computers. 

You see every pan of the 
Dragon has been carefully 
designed to be easily under- 
stoodeven by total beginners. 
Yet it has all the features an 
expert could want. Just ask it.

He moved with his family lo

Since making the move, Julian

He lives in the heart of the 
countryside with his parents 
and brother Jonathon. 

The surrounding hills make 
it virtually Impossible to pick 
up television broadcasts so 
Julian spends a lot of his 
spare lime playing video 
games ^ Even this takes a bit of 
effort in Uangeitho — a trip of 
twenty miles to the Royal Pier 
at Aberystwyth.

and the planes which Ity behind 
you. wi^h bombs at the feadly. 

Observing all this enables you 
to judge which route to take at 
the next sei of points, how to 
avoid the obstacles set m f rofit of 
you^ and how close the opposi 
tEon IS on your it ml 

From the side view ydii can 
see the track traumas scaled ep 
to take in the detail of the engine 
as It races away from the pur 
sumg trams end planet. 

Using this you can gyide your 
smoke puffs into the piTot's eyes 
and over the dropping bombs 

Your immediate answer fo 
most problems is to turn into a 
'^uper' locomotfve wh^ch can 
ride roughshod over any obsta- 
cle 

The ether possibility is to send 
out smokev attacks which can 
dissolve descending bombs and 
fjght off the plane attacks. 

Unlortunately the bursts o( 
^'super" power are shortlived 
and tend to dram your energy 
quiickly. 

This IS a game which depends 
heavaly on the operator settings 
Toe diff icull and Ihe game rapidly 
becomes unplayable 

Given a good ietrmg, it's an 
enjoyabEe romp through the sid- 
ings, wnh a marvellous rousing 
tune thai adds immensely to the 
action Perhaps il realty is the 
atii' ffcf 1**6 tram!

ATARI PRICE WARS 



GAMES THAT 
TALK BACK 

Feeling loneJy^ Want someone to 
laik lo? Then cheer up because 
help IS onlv i fame cartridge 
away. 

Talking games were first laitn- 
ched by Mattel who miroduced 
their speech add on last year 
Wfth two garnes — Space Spar- 
tans and B17 Bomber 

Since then they have fcilowed 
up with a talking Iron game — 
S0lar Sailor But it i$ not only 
Jntellfvision owners who will be 
able to enjoy talking games as 
Atari have announced a speech 
add-on as have Philips 

The Philips talkef has the 
wtdast vocabulary and can have 
word! typed into it from the 
keyboard 

The Atari talker is similar in 
design to Mattel's with the words 
used stored on the cartridges 



that plug into the vorce syntfi- 
osiser 

Talking games ere believed iq 
be the luture for videngaming 
and n seems likely that the neid 
feneration of entertarnment 
compuiers will heve advanced 



Summer bargains abound m the 
video gomes shops as the price 
war hots up 

Atan recentty lopped ES off the 
price of any new game Cen^ 
tipede lor a limited pericd 

Imagic are oHenng two games 
lor the price of one with Riddle of 
the SphfnK and Fire Fighter and 
Cosmic Ark and Atlint^s selling m 
double packs 

Sales are down everywhere — 
partly as a result of the seasonal 
Summer slump but the boom in 
secondhanif Atari VCS's must 
mean that many people are now 
upgradirtg either to home com- 
puters or iQ more advanced 
video games systems

you didn't know that Pac Man

wasn't Siouflh or Tokyo. It's 
actually in the goad old US of A

END OF fHE

games system in the UK. 

The Aten VCS is still Id be 
firtiduced even though if is new 
five Vial's old and consider ab^ 
inferior in design to some of the 
newer systen«. 

Atifi will continue to produse 
new games for the VCS and are 
to launch a range of add-ons 
including a speech synthesiser 
lor talking games and a keyboard 
which turns Xhe VCS inio a home 
computer 

RACE THESE 
HOT CARS! 

Would-be racing drivers will 
have plenty of oppi^rtynity for 
sneak armchair practice this au- 
tumn, as long ax they also have 
an Atari VCS 

It se^ms that road race games 
are about to hit ttie home victeo 
circuit in a big way. 

The official Atari odenng is a 






VCS version of their arcade 
game Pole Position, dye to be 
launched in cartridge form this 
September. 

You are at ttie wheel of a 
powerful racing car and the idee 
13 to overtake as many cars as 
possible in the shone si time. 

The main race, however, is 
open only to those who qualify in 
0\e first round which you have to 
do by comfileting a circuit in a 
sUghtly longer time. Ttiis ensures 
thai newcomers to sucli games 
are not ieced with a seemingly 
impossible task 

The car has two gears, high 
and low. which can be selected 
at any time by pulling the joystick 
towards you lor high and pushing 
tt away for low gear. 

Left and right are used to con- 
trol the car itself while the fire 
bumn acts as^ brake 

The circuit is well displayed. It 
takes up almost the entire width 
of the screen in the foreground 
and about hall that in the back- 
gmund as it goes towards the 
horiion 

The opposition to Po^e Position 
comes m the form of Enduro from 
Activisior^, due to be released m 
a couple of months. 

Another road -rate game, tfiis 
features a 24- hour rally in which 
you have to pass as many cars 
as possible in ane day. 

The time of day and (he va- 
rious stages m the race are rep 
resented on screen by some 



ceai^y stunning graphics whii^h 
ere among the best I Ve seen 
from a VCS 

The race starts in the morning 
with a green road ai^d blue hon- 
ion. As the day wears on the 
colour of the sky changes with i 
coteurful and gradual sunset 
vvith vanieus shades of pinks an^ 

Til en comes night. The diiplay 
changes to black and white and 
only the lights of tt^e cars are 
vtsible. In the middle ol the night 
comes tiie fog Visibility is halved 
and driving becomes more drffi- 
curt 

Quota for the first day if m 
pass 200 cars and if you succeed 
ttie largei rises lo 3C0 lor subse- 
quent days Jf you survive lot five 
days a tri>phy appears on the 
screen Send e photo ot this to 
ActJVHiSion for free membership of 
the Roadbusters club 

Enduro wins hands down on 
graphics The road is clearer and 
the game has various screens 
with different times of day and 
weather Pole Position i\n |utt 
one. 

I found the Activiaion car 
easier to control eicepi m the 
snow where sieenng ts deliber- 
ately sluggish 

I passed 200 cars quite quickfy 
' but 300 in the second screen i$ 
far more tncky. 

THE VERDICT 

If I wanted a road race game lay 
penonal choice would bt Ea* 
duro. Quite simply it has mon 
features and superior grapliici.

TAIL OF THE 
LOST MOUSE 

if you are loohroy ioi ft ma/e 
game for your brand new Coi- 
ecovifion then ihe choice so far 
Ji pretty limited. 

In fact there is luit one, Co)- 
ecQvtsion's own Mouse Trap — 
baied on the Exidv arcade game 
of the same name. 

Mouse Trap it considerabJy 
more cliff icuh to learn than Pac- 
Man whch perhaps explems its 
comparative failure in the 
arcades. 

However, thii added diffi cutty 
li a bonius for home use — 
^ere you can have am infinite 
number of g ernes without the 
arcade shutting or running out of 
cashf 

You art a mouse runmno 
thrcugti a maie eating pieces of 
ctieese as you travel Bonus 
sterns appear it random ill rough 
out the maze such as keys, 
spectacles, and safety pms. 

There are also larger cheeses 
worth more pomts and dog 
boAos. When you have coltected 
smral bones you can push the 
dog button which tyrns you into 
VICIOUS bulldog and set out after 
the cats that are tryiOQ 1Q thwart 
your mouse's progress. 



Ju^t as in Pac-Man your score 
myltiphas according io the num- 
ber o1 cats you can catch 

Game pfey is tjraught a stage 
beyond itie basic maie idea by 
the ability to change the shape o1 
the maze as the game lakes 
place. 

A series of gates can be 
closed and opened to prevent 
the cats gening at you 

At the higher skill levels there 
IS also a hawk which rfives at you 
— although I must say the ciea- 
lure tooled more like an aiifcrafi 
than any species of feathered 
friend that I've sported in the 
English coumryside. 

The bird is Aim diiy m dodge 
and ts more of frill than adding 
anything to the game. 

ColecovisiOA's unplayabEe 



It's here — the hr$t indepen- 
denily produced game For the 
Phillips G7000. 

A first for I magic, wrth ver- 
sions ol their top sellers Demon 
Attack and Atlantis 

The jury have been Qut fer 
several hours now considenng 
The verdici on Demon Attack 

One of tlie mam points raised 
by counsel for the prcsecutmn 
WAS the ierky slow mcving mis^ 
siles tt was fett 111 at ttiis com- 
pared paorly with the last action 
obtamable on the ongirtal 26O0 
version of thrs colourful games 

ti) a powerful speech wtiich 
must iiave convinced many of 
the wave re rs on the jury ttie 
young barrister lold the court 
that Phillips Demon Attack has 
no laser spitting ah ens — thus 
leaving out the prettiest part ol 
the ongmal game 

It's pointless lo speculate 



what the verdici will be — you ii 
just have ic wart titl the end Dt 
this review to find out what that 
Will be 

For my own part I lound the 
leier base very sluggish I don'l 
know if this i-s due to the game 
Itself or the ^famous Phillips 
jf^ysticfcs — eitfier way you get 
blasted al) too easiiy end more 
often than not lti rough no fiult of 
yoiif mm Not the best thing io 
happen when ynu're dealing with 
deadly aliens 

Colours are duller on the 
G?OtD version than on the Atari 
which — all in aH adds up to 
Dem#n Attack being a faifly uit- 
successful conversion. 

Full marks ta I magic for pro- 
ducing games lor the Phiitips but 
a little bit more consideration to 
what would make a goo4 game 
for thts system rattier than what 
would sell well on it might have 
produced a bettor game.

AM th« above cartridges ar* produced for the Atari VCS home 
vIcSeo games centre 



One of the best saFlmg games ol 
the year is undoubtediv Actt- 
vision's Pitlall 

Not suFposing therefare thai 
copies ot Ihe successlul formyb 
should Stan lo appaar 

The first was I magic's Tropical 
TroubJa tof Imellivi^ion and now 
we f^ave Jyngte Hunt from Atari 

The »dea of this laiesi VCS 
cartridge is to capiure tha 
BaaulHul Ma^defi Iviwn). 

You pi ay th^ pari of Safari Sam 
who h^s t<3 overcome foyr 
screens ^f dan gar. 

Using tt^0 lov^tick comroUar 
Sam swings Through the trees — 
from rop# to rope Tarzan style — 
prassing iha fire button to jump 

Onci through the Dtadfy 
ForesL Sam finds himself in the 
crocodile infested Reptrl^ River 
Armed with a ^pB&i he must 
impale tha croi:^ on the end ot it 
to sc>ore points and stay alive 

The next screen brings our 
hero sal«^ back to terra firma 
Wail not that safa really, as he is 
being bombarded w^th boulders 
that hfi has to hop o^ar. Donkey 
Kong t ash ion 

The final hurdle is to avod The 
spears being hurled by the vi- 
cious native ^o guards tht 
Cannibal Camp vvhere the 
maidan is held captive. 

This game m really intended 
for the younger games playar 
and dOQS not offai a strong 
enough challange to the serious 
games player 

Graphics can't hold a coconut 
to Pitfall and The gameplay quick- 
ly became ledmus. Jungle Hunt 

THE VERDICT 

If you are too king for a tafafi 

liaitnaf lot your VCS wt would 

iaggtft you take Pitfall Harry 

and leave Safari Sam m the 

shops.

I magic threw Itie best features d 
two iuccesiful arcade games 
logettier and came up VMith Nova 
Blasip a hybrid video game tor 
the lnteltivii|i§n system. 

Ffom Oaiendar it look the 
screen scroJimg from side to side 
and a radar scrten From Missle 
Command Came th^ cities which 
n^id protecting Irorn an 
onslaught of a liana. 

Sciunds good — but unforly 
nataly tha two elements hav^ not 
knitted into a well-balancad 
game. 

Voui craft shQOts a Jong above 
an ocean^ with four crties lymg. 
like Atlantis, beneath the waves 
These are protected by energy 
barriers from the a hen hordes 
which dive out of the shies 

But oJie direct hit Is encugh to 
dasTroy the barrier and tha natl 
hrt will destroy th^ City it sell 

Barners can be rep I em shed by 
your aircraft by use at a beam 
You slow down over a energy 
source to beam it onboard and 
Than beam it down to your unda^ 
fended city 

Of course energy sources tend 
to be some way From the cities 
so you have to laava a city iin 
guarded to collect n^w supplies 

Radar shows whether a crty 
has rts barners up or down mA ^t 
also shows your craft and tha 
aliens 

The aliens are rather umm- 
aginative m design apd hurl 
them salves around the screen 
only slowin^g down over the c^ty 
targets and going into a spiralling 
dive on^tp ttie cities — they don't 
miss 

Water walkers are the und^r 
water peril as I hay stalk yaur 
Cities they hurl bombs skywards 
Aliens come m waves and bonus 
scores are timlt up for each city 
still standing after each wa¥e 

On the easy levels, tha tnck fnr 
saving at least oen crty is soon 
l^^tni Oh f]ih«r lr>^als, thought is 



needed to conibaE x\m wdlkffrs. 
Graphically disapppintmA, 
Nova a la St suffers from the pre- 
dictabfitity at alien mevtmeni, 
they )U5t overwhelm your CEtias 
by a f hear forct ol numbirt.

and capture eiMier of tfis Stones, 
which are behind the final will.

There is one alternative to

given SO extra energy points. 
This aaarfy is takan frnm his 
rasarva Isbown n#Mt to his anar- 
gy. At tha start aacli Wizard has 
SM anarfT taints, with 100 m 
resarvel. but only S i$ daduciad. 
However, a Wizard does not run 
his reserves down ligbfly, for it 
is whan his reserves reach zero 
Aat he dies, and it ti trMi his 
reserve that pfiints ara deducted 
when he is affactad by a spelL 

It is impoftMt to keep a hifh 
rasarvas figure in the early 
stagas. for at tha and of each 
turn, tha Wkardi recti ve aMtta 
energy paints ei|ue1 to 10% of 
thatrftseTves. 

How does a Wizard cail a 
spalt. and how doas he choose 
which ona to cast? To taM a

Ill dayv of old wlwii kBlghtm w«r« twld they lot 
lov«d to have a battle. Aod when a fire- bro a thing; 
Dngofx waju't available the next best thijag was to 
go and lay siege to your neitt-door neighbonn' castle 
foi a few w«*lai. 

Taking along yom loyal retainen and trusty todt' 
catapult yon'd tmdge off and pitch camp outside the 
castle and wait for tlie |K>ot chap inside to give*ap or 
start eating rati. Yon dont have to sit around for 
manths, braving all the eUineiits, Yonr siege will 
last l&st 30 eeconds! And if you fail to win the castle 
within that time it's back to Dragoti hunting. ToQ*lI 
MM a castle with defender* appearing on the battle- 
maote and at windowe. you are armed with your 
tnisty catapult and have to fire at the defenders in a 
bid to wipe them all ont. If yon manage to knock out 
all the defenders within the 30 second time Umit 
then the castle is conquered. You have to be quick 
on the draw as the defenders move about rapidly. 
The nunber of defenders is governed by the difflcitl- 
ty level yon chose at the start of each game. 

Yon aim the catapult by moving the sight with 
keyi Qt W, £, A, D, Z, X and C, The weafM>n Is Orad 
Meing the 5 kay.

& TURTlEliOe 




Meanwhile out in ttie iungli . . * an txpedition is 
attempting to cross a fast flowing river. The porters 
have found that the hest way to carry the expedition's 
provisions and equipment across is to hop ovef the 
baclts of friendly turtles swimming in the river. 

tfowever, although the turtles don't mind being 
used as stepping stones they do go get peckish from 
time to time — and may decide to dive down for a 
fish just when a porter is about te step an it. Once oji 
the ethef side another porter is waiting to collect 
your parcels — well most of the time he's there 
anyway. Sometimes he may decide to nip off too — 
leaving you to dodge about on the turves until he 
returns! There are several skill levels and a constant 
disfriay on screen of the high score and number of 
successful crossings made . \ . dop't get your feet 
wet! '/ ''^

Clarence the caterpflfar is always on the 
look out for a quick snack to speed htm on 
his way to butterflyhood. You guide him 
through the mushroom patch, picking up 
points as Clarence munches on leaves, 
twigs, flowers, apples and acorns. But be- 
ware this is a very addictive game, you'll 
want to keep playing until you've collected 
that high score! The controts are extreme- 
ly simple — just use the Z and M keys to 
move left and right through the maze of 
mushrooms. Full instructions are included 
in the program. Happy munching!

Mtcronet 800. The spectacular service 
that gives micro-users access lo a 
huge database of information, hundreds of 
software programs, and communication 
with other users. 

Sinclair ZX Spectrum. The home 
computer thafs out-shone all its rivals. 

Bring the two together and it's a 
combination that opens up a breathtaking 
new world of microcomputing possibilities 

Suitable for either the 16K or 48K 
versions, the Prism VTX 5000 modem was 
designed specifically for the Spcctnim and 
fits neatly under the micro. 

Bug the other end into the outside 
world via your telephone and your system 
will give you more than you ever dreamed 
possible. 

Micronct 800 is 
fun, friendly and 
inexpensive to run. 
Choose from hundreds 
of tree games, down- 
load and use them on 
your Spectrum when- 
ever you like, play on- 
screen games (as easy- 
and inexpensive -as a 
local phone call), and 
compete in Big IMsce 
games and qui^^es. Therc*s also a range o( 
downloadable games you can buy for less 
than over-the-counter prices.

GETTING OUT 
OF A SPIN! 

Wit 4f# gouig Eo look m\ m group of 
iimn^itiora that, Uke tto logical mmnxc- 
tion^ feamred m the Iasi artictet opfiiate 
dur&ciJy on bits. 

These are Shifi and Rolafe instruc- 
cionj that move ihe bils in a byle one 
place to the left or right, and (he opera- 
lion of the various mstrudions available 
on the 6S02. 6809 and ZJSO are showii in 
the diagiarns. 

Before going on to look at what you 
can use these Lrunruaions for *e wiU 
take a clo^r look at tha mstFUCtions on 
Ihs mdividuai processois. 



INITIALS TO 
REMEMBER 

6502 

Thflte are four shift and rotace ffmemo- 
nics, 

ML <Ajrithfnetic Shift Left). LSR (Logical 
Shift Right, HOR (XOliie lUghtX ROL 
Rotate Left), ^tiich can all be used in 
five addiewing mode^. Accmnulator, 
Abeoiute, Zero |>age. Absolute indexed 
by % and Zero page indexed by X. 
The assembly language source iotm& 
are: 
A£L A 

ASL address: 16 bn address 
AEL addreis; 8 bit zero page addr^^ 
ASL ^Mnss, X; 16 bit address 
ASL addr#«^, X: 6 bit »ro page address 
and surularty for the other three mne- 
monics. 

In the accumitlatoT addxeoing mode 
(which can only be used with these four 
mnemonics) it is the accwnulator that is 
shifted or rotated, in the o^bef addres- 
sing modes the memory location indi^ 
cat^ by the operand is shifted or ro- 
tated. 

Note thai the pau^ ASL and LSR. and 
ROR and ROL work adenlically except 
for the direciion of rnQVemeni, and that 
the bit tiiat is moved out of the byte goes 
inio the carry (lag. The resiilt of the 
operation* replaces the origmal oper- 
and, in the accmnulator or memory 
according to the addressing mode. 

As well as the carry flag being set by 
the bit thai is moved out of the operand 
the sign and zero flags are sel accord- 
ing io the result of the operation. 
6809 

The rotate and shift instructions on the 
6809 are very similar to th<^e of the 
880a and the A^ LSR. ROL and ROR

mstiructions do exactly the same as the 
correspondmg mnemonics on the 6S0S. 

LSL (locical Shift Left) is ju^ a diffe^ 
rem nam^^ for ASL and both mnemonics 
give the same ob]ect code- 

The other 6809 insimctions, ASR 
(Arithmetic Shift Right), is similar to LSR, 
bul leaves bit seven (the most signifi- 
cant bit) of the operand unchanged. 

ASL. LSL. ASR, LSR, ROL and ROR 
can be used with dtreci, e^endedn and 
aU indexed and indirect addressing 
modes. The operation i^ performed on 
the contents of the memory location 
indicated by the operand ^d the result 
IS wntteti back mto the same memory 
kication. 

For shift and rotate ofiemtions on the 
accumulators A an B we have the inhe- 
rent mode mnemomcs ASLA. ASLB. 
LSLA, LSLB, ASRA. ASRB, I£RA. LSRB. 
ROLA. ROLB, ROR, RORB. 

As well as the carry flag bemg sei by

CHANCE OF 
ADDRESS. . . 

ma 

The shift and rotate mnemonics can be 
used w)th the following addressLng 
modes: 

RR register: reguMi Is one of A. B, C, D, 
E. H, L 
RK (HL) 

RR (DC - d); d ts an eight bit displace- 
ment 

RR {fY ^ d}: d IS and eight bU displaw- 
ment. 

and Similarly for RRC. RL, RLC, SLA. 
SRA, SRL, 

Nde that RR and RL perform a nine 
bit rotation (the eight bits of the operand 
ph«s the carry Oag) while RRC and RLC 



ptirfonn ftn eight bit ro^^ion on th« 
Dperand and copy the ongmal bx\ O 
(RSCj or bit seron [RLC) mto the cairy 

As wril as th© cany flag . RR RRC. RL, 
RLC. Sm SUA m<i SRL set the sign, 
lero amid parify overflow flags accord- 
ing to ihe result of the operaiion. Th^se 
■Mft and rotate mstructiocis, as weU as 
the logicaJ instniciions we looked al last 
inanih. treat The P O flag ai a parity flag. 

The value of the P O flag is calculated 
bom ihe ptimber of Is or Os m the eight 
brt result of the opeTa^tPn: if there m an 
odd number of Is or Os the P O flag 
becomes 1 and if there is an o^en 
nuinbei of la oi Os the P/O Rag becomes 
0. 

The ntimber of is and the number of 
Cks in a byte must both be odd or both be 
even because there is a total of eight 

The main use for parity is in data 
communications, wheie parity can be 
used to check whether a character or a 
bkxde of data ha;s been transmitted i^t- 
rectly. 

For example, (here are I^ ASCH 
characters so we need seven bit^ to 
represent an ASCH character. 

If we are traitsmitting eight bit bytes 
the e3ctra bit can be calctilated so that 
every byte has, say, even panty, and 
then if a byte with odd panty was 
received we would know that there had 
been an errtir in iransmission, 

A smgle panty bit only aJJows us to

CODE 



detect a one bit error, hm with more 
parity bits and a more oompUcated 
method of encoding the signals it ts 
possible to detect errots of two or more 
bits and even to correct some errors. 

The tnstructions RL register. RLC reg^ 
isier, RR register, RRC register, include 
RL A, RLC A. RR A, RRC A (note the 
spaces}. But there separate instructions 
RLA, RLC A RRA. RRCA (no spaces). 
Although the two forms have the same 
effect on the accumulator and the carry 
flag there are two dtfferences. 

The most impoitani difference is m 
the effect on the flags RL A, etc (with 
space) effect ihe carryn sign, zero and 
panty/overflow flags, but ELA. etc 
(without space) affect only the carry Bag 
and leave the other flags unchanged. 

The other difference is in the object 
code for the Lnetrucuons. The object 
code for RL A, etc. is two bytes, while 
the object code for RLA, etc is only one 
byte, takmg up less space and execut- 
ing faster. 

Another point to notice is that 
although most of the shift and rotate 
mstmctiot^s come in conespondum left 
and nght pairs ^ there is no SLL instruc- 
tion conesponding to the SRL instruc- 
tion. SLL was designed mto the ZdO but 
IS not docurnen^ed because it did not 
work conectly m all coses. 

Sorrte aswmblers for small micro- 
computers will accept SLL and other 
undocumented mstructior^ bm it is not 
wise to use them. Although these un- 



documented instructions may appear to 
work there is no guaraniee that they will 
work properly wiih aU operands or on 
all Z60 naiCTOprocessors. 

The two msiruciionfi RLD {Rowe Left 
Digit) and RRD (Rotate Right Digit) ro- 
tate by four places at once« between the 
least Significant (oui bits of the accumu- 
lator and the memory location whose 
address is m the HL regwfler pair. 

In the diagram for RLD, p, q, r and s 
each represent four bits, and after the 
RLD instruciion was executed A would 
contain pr and the memory location 
would contain sq, 

One use of the shift and rotate instruc- 
tions IS for n^ultiplication and divisioiL 
The simplest case is multiplication or 
division of small unsi(pied ntmibers by a 
power of two which just reqimres shift- 
ing left for multipUcatton or shifrmg nght 
for division. 

A single arithmeiic shift left muhipltee 
a byte by two, arithmetic shift left iwice 
multiplies by four, etc, and sunilaily 
arithmetic shift right divides by two, 
arithmetic shih right twice divides by 
four, etc. 

h is a bttie more comphcated If yoy 
are dealing with signed bmary mimbeia 
or numbers that take up more than one 
byte, but the» cases are still fairly 
simple. 

In general, multiplication require a 
combinatton of shifts and addtiiona. 
while division requires a combmalion of 
shifts and subtractions.

GROW WORM —

Couig back a couple of issues, there 
may still be problems with Grow Worm 
for the Atan 400 BOO from May. Line 4 la

replaced with 4 PRINT CHR$tl2S>. The 
bracket m line 30 is the same character 
and can be subetituted with PRINT ^B: 
CHRS{ia3). 

SPLITTING THE VIC 

The practice of splmmg Vic 20 pro 
grams mto two parts lo enable them to 
run in 3.5k still cauros problems- 

The basic (sorry f) idea is that when 
user defined giaphics or machine code 
is set up usmg dala statements, the data 
lines are used only once to alter the 
memory. Once they have done then job, 
they may be erased, leaving the 
graphics safely m memory out of the 
way of the main program. 

This is why some Vic games are split; 
one program i$ used to set up the 
graphics, and can then be erased. This 
then leaves a full 3.Sk for the main 
program io use. 

To enter such a program ia simple 



rewind the tape. 

• Turn off the machine to clear the 
program from memory. 

• Turn the machine back on and type 
in the second program. Save this on 
the tape straighf after the Bitt pro- 
gr^n. 

• Turn the madtune on and off again. 
To play Ihe game, load in the first 

progi^m and leave the tape recorder 
runrung. The first program will do iss tob 
and will then bHd the second program 
in straight d^fter, overwrjtmg the Urit 
program in the process You will usuaUv 
find that the first program ends m a 
LOAD statement for this purpose.

Each number then scores points

planned and wnnen, with a fast 
response. There are well over 200 loca- 
tjons, and the descriptions are both 
lengthy and mlereslmg. 

The objects number about 100. Ir 
Gocild therefore take some months to 
ejtplore the whole network, givmg 
many houii of enioymetit in the 
process. 

1 could only fauh this gaiiie on one 
point. Where, oh where, did that cursor 
go'' 

ENTER THE 
UNKNOWN... 

The Dragon js a compiler for which the 
rnige of nftwwe amilible is noi im- 
mense. 

There is a Temptation, therefore, lor 
the Adventure enthusiasl with a Dragon 
computer to eagerly buy any Advenlure 
game that he comes across. 

If you are such, then it is only fair to 
warn you nor to bothef with Forbidden 
Qty from Apex Tradirvg of Bnghton. 

The game i£ set on a planet with a 
Forbidden City, in whjch„ the intro 
reads, there may be hidden treasure. 
You stajft in a location described as

I dc^t understand the noun 

And so Oil — until m desperation you 
take one of the exit routes, described m 
abbreviated form a$ N, S. W, E «lc. but 
not recognised as such. 

Many of these lead to death by mearu 
such as deep pits and wall CTUshing 
chambers, which ]usf happen, for no 
apparent reason, to be there. 

With no warning or reuon given, 
one's powers of deduction could not be 
tised to solve problems to detect any 
potential trouble. 

There were no probtatni — (except 
m Wfmg to fathom out if any of the 
words used m the gante were reoog- 
nised by the game) ^ tt was aU a 
question of blundering through by brute 
force and ignorance. 

An mnedtbly bonng "game"^ just like 
the few other Apex (non-Adventure) 
games that I have seen. Don'i confua^ 
this Forbidden City with the talking 
disc-based TKS^BO Adventure of the 
same name, which has been around 
loviger than Apex.

PLAYING WITH 
BILL'S PET 

Some tune ago I had a letter trom BiU 
Stanton, of Si. Albans who had been 
having great tun with the Captain 80 
Book of Basic Advantures. 

This book, vffhich 1 reviewed in 
Fatoraary, UsJs about l& Adventures tof 
the TRS-flO, onguvaUy pubMhed in cas- 
sette form. BJi has a Pet. aivd wn 
nvjred to transdate these luamgs. being 
carved of Advennire due lo the limited 
number of game* available for his 

machine. 

That IS vffhere the ton began! Tite Pet, 
m oominon with a number of othei 
microa, doesn't have an ELSE statemew, 
and the TRS-eo does, 

Advenmre programs, for every mput 
Erom the player, have to check so many 
(^onditwDS, each wth a different reauH, 
that the ptoorammer with on Ei^ iiaie- 
mervt at his fingertips will tend to oae it 

10 the tuU. 

BiBs problem was deducing the way 
in which multiple ELSEs opwran^ and 
ItMn rearranging the logic Withoflt us- 
ing the word He wrote to suggest that a 
shon eiplanation might be useful to 
those not blessed with an ELSE, and he 
cune up with the following line to use as 
an example: 

50 fflSTS(TitS.3) - -ABC" T«mjff 
Q((l) <> T OR 0S(2) <> "3" THEN 
1000 El££ 100 ELSE 700 

Let us have a look at what this means 
The logic m this line can more easily be 
sMn by re-aTTa«gma « «* follows 
IT (condition 1) 

THEN IF toomdiuon 3) 




THEN taction l> 
ELSE (action 2) 
EI£E (action 3} 

We can now see that: U condition 1 is 
§atisfied then condition 2 is checked. If 
oondinon Z is satisfied, then action I 
takes place, if condition 2 is no^ satis- 
fied, action 2 takes place, H condition 1 
IS nrt satisfied, then action 3 takes 

place. 

Let us now see if we can rewrUe fine 
BO without the use of ELSE, This will 
mean u^ng additional lines. Assumung 
that there ajre no existing lines between 
50 and 60 we gel: 

50 IF LEFTS<1H13) = -ABC" THEN 54 
52 GOTO TOO 

64 IF OKI) <> OR OKS) <> "3^ THEN 
lODO 

B6G0TO 100 
which provides the same logic To ar- 



rive ai the "no ELSE" venwon requires a 
careful analysis of the ksgic of the on- 
ginal code, so that the way it operaies » 
completely understood. 

The trafislalion needs some care ui 
planning the numberB of the additional 
lines II there are insufficient spare num- 
bers between adjacent lines w the oii- 
guial program- it may prove nece«aiv 
to move the transUtion down to the end 
of the program, and acceaa it with a 

GOTO. , ^ 

Bill's other hobby is coUectmg locks. 
Having unloclfed the aeoel of El^Fs, 
he IS now happily searchjjig for keys to 
the locks in the Adventure games he 
has pamstakingly buih up ^ himselfi I 
And no doubt if he can't find ihem. the I 

knowledge built up through his two 
hobbies wtttenal^ htm to expertly pick 
them as a last resort! _

EXTEND THE POWERS OF YOUR TEXAS 



The Texas iMtnimenis T1S9/4 |ia$ its 
own version of Basic, calied T1 Basic, 
with which it IS supplied. This version of 
the language is quite simple, even 
raEher piimiuve in some respects. 

Coupled wilh the fact that the TI99'4 
ootiiants a IS- bit microprocessor, this 
tnakes ii evei% more surpn-smg fhat 
pfograms wntten in TI Bamc mn quite 
abwif. 

Howevef , there is another version of 
the kngmige aYailable for ihe machine 
Thli IS Tl Extended Ba^ic and il com^^ 
m cartridge form. Il extends and con- 
siderably improves on some aspecu of 
the other version by providing over 40 
new or ej^ended fealuies. 

These inctade supplymg or enhanc- 
ing features lor general programmkng. 
for example, wilh a PRINT AT stale menc 
and a much moi general IF-TlQn^-ELSE 
statement. 

They also mclude many commaiidi 
Idt Sprite graphics^ and a few com 
mauds fo£ generating speech usmg the 
speech module thai can be attached to 
the compuier. 

Naturally, Jt is the Spnie graphics thai 
IS of mieresi to us, and one of iis gieat 
attractions ts that considerable numbers 
of Spntes can be moved over the screen, 
at great speeds. When (his i& done one 
begins to feel for almost the first time 
that the power of the 16 bit micro- 
processor is bemg harnessed. 

The commands supplied for Sprite 
graphics by Tl Extended B^sic are 
lisiod in iht; table below. 

Given this repertoire of coriimands, it 
LS at ftrst a little baUhng to know how to 
use them to best effe<:t. and to vnualise 
what kinds of effects can be achieved 
wi^th their use. 

If we think m terms of programmmg a 
Space Invader game, we can begin to 
see the uses for them. 

With CHAR we could design the 
shapes for the Invaders. Then SPRITE 







^hjpii ol Sprilffi la cwnt* 

lets us position them and set ihem in 
motion. 

To change their positions and ih# 
ways that they move so that their 
motions do not have to be entirely pre- 
dictable, we can use LOCATE and 
MOTION 

COENC can be used to detect when 
the Spnte used for a missile strikes an 
invader, and DELSPRITE can then be 
used to remove the Invader 

It is possible to use MAGNIFY to 
erdaige the trivaders to give an illusion 
of movement oui of the screen to ^H-i t^ 



the tttovements in the plane of the 
screen. 

The PATTERN command would 
come mio its own m programming a 
Pacrnan g«me« where it could be used 
to create the munching effect by change 
mg the shape of the P*cmaji. Oearty the 
oommands ar0 ideal for programming 
games of !hefe kinds^ 

They can iko be used, howevert to 
create very realistic aiumaiion sequ- 
ences with ease. Becausie the movim^i 
of a Sprite js maintained autORiaticaity, 
changmg its shape while tt is moving 
aUows effects mch as a man rwming or 
a bu-d flyuig or a fooibaUer kicking a 
ball to be created with a mimrr^um of 
effort 

Notice that for a footballer kickinf a 
ball we should need iervenl shapes to 
assign to the Sprite for the footballer to 
make him run and kick, and one for the 
football. 

COINC would be used to detea when 
the baU was kicked, and then the Spnte 
for the ball woukl be set m motion using 
MOTION. 

The foUowii^ short program shows 
hew a Spnte can be defined, magnified, 
set tn motjon across the screen, and 
have Its shape changed as il moves The 
two shapes thai it asmimes atemaiftly 
are shown in the diagrams.

Krazy Kong has been driving some of our read^i'S madder than that 
gistnt gorilla^ 

This games tape, tor the Spectrum, produced by C TECH of Hyde. 
Cheshire, has already come in for severe crilicism on our Mailbag 
pages and we have received other letterSt reprinted here, detailing 
our readers problems with the game. So we decided to contact 
C TECH and talk about the gorilla gripes you have brought to our 
attention. Read on to discover more - . . 



I waited over 3 momh lor delivery of C TECH s Krazy Kong, which J then 
round totally unplayable. The advert js designed to mislead M takes a 
lor^g time to load and there are only two di Her ant screens. The advert 
said there were three. 

I also received C TECHs Gortian Invaders, bu? it would not work, 
ran through Che cassette and got bits and pieces of other games

* am wriling concerning (he C TECH Kfazy Kong for Ihe Spectrum 
which I bought a few months ago. I found the game very disappointing 
and the advert very misleading. 

The adven said "super hi-res mactilne code". When I received the 
game ) thought it would have smooth non-lllcher animation — not just 
a |umpy compiled Basic program. The game is unplayable as It is loo 
fast. The Mario" figure flickers — even when you are standing stUf. If 
there are three screens they are impossible to gel to as the blobs — I 
itii^k they are meant to be barrels — fly through ' Marto" wntll your 10 
lives are up end a feeble bleep occurs. 

The only way to toad the game I found was to breaK into the loader 
program by turning Ihe computer off and on again and then typing 
LOAD "KK16 ' — and it then takes ages to foad. 

I have servt my cassette back complaining about Ihe game — but 
have not received a reply for over two months. The more people who 
voice their anger about this game the quicker it will be taken off the 
market.

Shirley Femon, Bile« director tor 
C TECH, sowided surprised when we 
contfonted her with ihe complaints. 

"It's our verv best seller/ sh^ bkmI "1 
think it's A case of 'you can't please a!i 
the people aij the im\e'' She added she 
was 1104 ftu^re that die company had

problems with the game could ex-

conqslalnls we'd srtiU be sellmy it^ Some 
people jiint don't Like video style games 
People either love Kiazy Kong or h^t- 
11/ 

So our advice to people who hav^- 
suffered at the hands of tlus Koti^ m to 
contact C TECH and tato ttem up on 
Shiiley's offer of an exdmnge tape. 

We asked one of our 9UV>^ rant- a 
ers, Roben Schifroen, to give us his 
opinion of Krazy KJotm. 

"When you siait k»ding the piogidm 
i! stops and asks you to put the machine 
mto capitals mode before contmumg 
k»dijig An e^cpenenced Spectrum 
programmer would know the location of 
th^ POKE which would do thus automaii- 
cally. 

"As for the game itself, the gtaphics 
are uniealistic, and nothing like the 
arcade game which the titte would sua 
gest It IS based on The imii his no 
moving parts and the "bairali* are ur 
convincing. Ot\ playabiikty 1 canl com

Welcome to the colourful world of computer 
games! This month our reviewers have been look- 
ing at a number of Dig-Dug type games for the 
Atari home computer — Diamond, Anteaier and, of 
course. Dig -Dug itself. We tell you which we think is 
best! Then there's our flavour of the month, Manic 
Miner for the 48k Spectrum. Read about it on page 
131. Chopper Rescue gets the thumbs-up from our 
revtow tsam. Find out why on page 130 
Then there's Talking Android Attack, a version of 



TALKING ANDROID 
ATTACK 

that old arcade favourite Berserk but wiih the 
added mgredient — voice power. Read our opinion 
of ihrs interesting innovation on page 129, Mean- 
whiie under the ocean- waves lurks the Sealord, 
ready to blast your tiny submarine out of the water. 
Learn about the shell wars on page 131 

We also thought it was about time we reminded 
you how we judge these games. So you'll find a 
rundown of !he categofies on page 132. So now, lum 
the page and get stuck into those games

TALKING ANDROID 



Talking Android Atlack it 

- unfortunately tt ^usl d^tiir. , L.n„.M-r 

quite come oH 

A sythesiseii voice coufd add s^ 
iTiMch 10 the playabihty al any gime tiiit 
in this case the aridroids could do Wiih 
some elocution lessons 

The idea is identtcal lo thai old 
tiv^unie Berserk except that you have 
the added task of reci^vermg treasure 
from each of the rooms you visit while 
avoidmg the tobotic nasties that lurlc 
wilHin The andioids me determined riot 
10 lei you get at it^e ireasurg and are 
anned we^l enough m ^top ytau dead in 
your tracks 

Micredeal cleim that the best feature 
in their game is the tailing However 1 
could g«t no sense out ef this synthe 
sfsetl voice, despne offeni^g such a 
challenge to the enitre office 

The rdea behmd this game vs to steer 
VDUT robPt through Ihe rocms whrle 
avoiding the deadly walls and also the 
roaming androids Vou are equipped 
With a laser gun wtiicti can hm in eighi 
directions depending on which way you 
happen to be travelhng 

Movemeni ts controJIed wKh a Ora 
gon joystick It takes Ihe robiJt almost 15 
seconds to travel From one side of the 
screen lo the qiher This puts him at na 
real disadvsnlage. though, as the pur- 
suing androidi are no faster 

The graphics in the game are bare^ 
average The robot moves hit legs 
wl^en he walks but m my opinmn th^s 
gimmick sliou^d have been sacnhcod m 
the interest ol speed. 

The rooms themselves are made oi 
crude gfaphics ypcks and the eitu^ at b 
far too wide 

Not one of the better Dragofi games 
this. I m afraid, and really not worth [ht 
£8 00 price tag However, if you want lo 
see for yourself ttren it's available from

So^lwi^e ^niefs Irom three conttnents 
tia^t iusE launched nv^l games based 
on tho oreads hii — Dig Dug 

Game America ts ihg official version 
and tomes Iram the Atan stable As 
wth Ihe maiotFtv o< Alan a read t con- 
^eiS4orT$ Oig Dug is i foasaniblv 
iuThenlic copy 

You ar& !tie little character Kg Dug 
who tynnats his way ihrough the soil m 
a bid 10 uneanh and kill ili© monsier^. 

When all the hre~ breathing monsters 
have bean elifninated a new screen is 
started. 

To add rnterest you can also c^ifled 
bonus points by gobbling ilia try its 
vyhich ippear at random 

This IS a simpte and absorbing gama 
which witl doubitess selt well m the 
strangtti of its arcade padigree. 

SFighllv mora orifinal — though siilJ 
based on the up\dergreund tunnellifiQ 
idea of Dig -Dug — is An teeter from 
Romox You are an ant and your issk if 
to bring lour eggs ^^fely back to your 
neit withoyl being sniflad oiit and 
eaten by the Anieaier 

You are armed with four delayed 
action bombs which yott can u$e to 
wipe oui an Anteaier whith i& in hot 
pursuit. Using ihe bpmbs is the most 
enioyable part of Anteaier though you 

>v ^ave four of them — so use them 

When you have cleared one screen 
the next screen presents two anteaiors. 
then three — end all the time the game 
IS genmg faster and faster 

Anieaier i$ manufactured in the Pl^il- 
hpines ftif RampM of California Like 
Dig Dug it \% in tirtridfte format coating 

itrnund £30- 

The best ol the bunch is our vary own 
home grown Diamonds — from the 
f nglish Software House. 

This takes the digging concept of Ihe 
game a stage further and introdtices 
several other characters to improve the 
game play 

You have to collect dtami^nds that 
are bunod m the earth Trying to pre- 
vent you Iri3m collectmg the jewels are 
firefljes whicti chase you with great 
speed, theie is also Brran the Blob. 
Simon the Snake, the £yes, and the 
Demon. 

Phitip Ihe Hller else comes mto the 
game \n the later stages filNng in the 
tunnels you have already dug — don't 
le! him catch you^ 

Diamonds scores over the other two 
games in that grealtr strategy and 
planning are required to clear each 
screen 

There is also Ihe added challenfte 




that in Diamonds if yau gel to Ihe 
^iKteanth screen you wait gel to see the

RESCUE THOSE 
STRANDED 
SCIENTISTS. . . 



CHOPPBt RcnajE 



The helicopst: .^»;^tib .i'^. uu^m^l en- 
vironment in Chopper Rescue, to go on 
a mission of mercy underground 

Five sckentisis are bufied below a 
pilo of radioactive waste and yoti have 
to guide your helicopter towards them 
blasting and bombing to creili a net 
work of tunnels. 

Through these you fly CO bnng the 
scientists out and back to satoi:y on the 
helipad. 

So far this might sound easy — once 
you've learnt how to use the keys to 
control your helicopter -- but the whoio 
operation is made eKcruiarmglY difficuN 
by an enemy bomber dropping mo re 
waste to fill m the tunnels and divastat 
mg bombs which scythe through the 
whote lot, and all the lime your lyel 
supply is rapidly running cull 

The graphics on this program are 
effectrve while not excepfional - the 
routine for the disintegration of tho 
helicopter takes up too much time — 
but it's not really a game that is dipin- 
dant on pretty colours 

The maior playmg drawback is Itiat it 
requires five -fingered control on the 
keyboard version, but tliES can be over- 
come with practise and does not app^ 
10 the joystick version 

It is an addictive exampio of a fOod 
old fflst playing test of skill — you can 
wreck your throe helicopters very 
quickly indeed — and the fiext game

PENGUINS 
MAKE LIFE 
PERILOUS!! 



dxa 



iiikU 



There's humour, horror and whoJesome 
addictiofi awaiting the intrepid hero d1 
the marveiJaus Manic Miner 

From perilous penguins to farocmus 
piiofies, th^s Bug-Byre game is tjKed 
W3th the most unhkely viHatm trying to 
thwart yoyr progress through to the 
next cavern 

Mjn^r Wilty itiysl eiqalofe the under- 
grpund caverns and collect the h&y$ 
which open the door to the next cevern. 

Minar 2049 er. which runs on an 
Atari, is considered a bif game with its 
12 screens Menic Miner has 2Q and 
each ks a game m itself. 

The designer of this game has come 
up witfi some highly original scenarios: 
my personal favourites include Attack 
of The Mutant Telephones and also the 
man eatcng torlets The bank scene fs 
very clever, but don t get caught by the 
bounpng ctieque^ 

Although the game is not written for 
use with any particular joystick it 
should} run on ttiose which allow the 
interface m be pfogranimed i& use 
certain keys 

I found the movement keys quite 
easy to master and have so far man- 
aged to reach fevel four A sacret 
message awaits yi^u if you successluNy 
complete all 20 levels and Bug Byte 



promise a prife to the hrst s^ch person 

Timing is the key to success Once 
you have mastered a screen, you m\l 
usually have little difficulty m ql^aridg it 
every tjnie. Some levels, fhougti, take a 
long time to solve especially a$ you 
have to start at screen one each time 
yoiir ihiee lives run out. 

One of the qualities which make a 
game a winner is wheitier youll keep 
coming back for more. Mamc Mm^r 
scores wtll here, as it wil' take son^c 
lime to complete 

When the impressive iitie IrairiB 
comes up. you are told to press a key to 
staa tf you don t. the game will cycle 
through all ZD screens giving you a 
short preview o1 eacti 

Impressive graptiics and goad sound, 
dug Byie have prociuced a challenging 
game with long lasting appeal 

Mamc Miner runs on a 48k Spectrum 
and It) we^l worth the £b9h charged by

SHELL WARS

FTTiTil 



The ghostly voica of the Seaiprd; re^ 
ver berated through the deep. "So you 
have sunk my Shell Fighters, my Smart 
Mines Will f mis h you otf/ And they did I 

In Sealord, one o* the ^^test offenngs 
from Liverppcl-based Bug-Byta, you 
hnd yourself in control of a submarine 
when you stumble into the Seaiord's 
underwater empire. Immediately you 
are under attack from one ot many 
wave:^ of the Sealord s henchmen 

Your submarine is comrol^ed by two 
keys which rotate the sub anii -clock- 
wise and clockwise When the key js 
released the sub travels in the direction 
It IS lacing I found it almost impossible 
to Enanoeuvre the sub with any degrae 
of accuracy and found ihe haphazard 
way of moving vary frustrating 

Graphically the best part of the game 
IS when you get lapped by an aiien The 
rocks on the seabed, which lesemhle 
blue and white rectangles, Hash in a 
gratifying way as the explosion rocks 
the screen. 

A bonus to the game ^s a 3 Q effect to 
the rocks enabling you to riisappear 
wheri you saH behind I hem The aliens 
can also do the same and can catch 
you unawares.
